Interview

SINCE WHEN HAVE YOU BEEN INTO MUSIC AND HOW DID YOU DECIDE TO START?
23 years ago, my relative Chavdar Chendov, the founder of Rhythm magazine, told my father that there was a new jazz singing department at NBU, so I applied and was accepted into Angel Zaberski's class. I have been happy with music for 23 years.


WHICH SONG DO YOU REMEMBER MOST OF YOUR CHILDHOOD?
The song I remember from my childhood is not one, but one of them is "It's flowing, everything's flowing."


WHO ARE THE ARTISTS YOU HAVE LISTENED TO AND PLAYED THE MOST?
I love and listen to jazz, funk, soul, pop, country and classical music, also hip-hop and there is no one I have listened to the most, but Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Billy Holiday, Amy Winehouse, Beyonce, Leonard Cohen, Marvin Gay, Johnny Mitchell, Aretha Franklin, Johnny Cash, Emily Sante, Liane la Havas I listen to very often.


IN WHICH MUSICAL STYLE ARE YOU MOST ADVANCED?
Popimprovizovjazov


WHAT DOES MUSIC GIVE YOU?
Music gives me meaning and calmness and emotions, as well as happiness and thought.

WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO START TEACHING MUSIC?
Because I felt I had the talent to pass on what I knew to others and because it's very interesting and I think I'm helping a lot of people. This is very important to me.


WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO LEARN IN MUSIC?
There is hardly one most important thing, but in my opinion, one of the most important is to work hard, to be constant and to look for who you are in music. Your handwriting.


WHAT IS ROCKSCHOOL FOR YOU?
RockSchool is my other family. At the end of my last lesson for 2018, I cried when I left, because I realized how important and real what we do in our school is.


WHICH MUSIC IS VALUABLE TO YOU?
Music is a collection of knowledge, experience, and feelings. Sincere music that a person feels and has learned to perform with ease.


WHAT IS THE MOST EXTRAVAGANT THING YOU HAVE LISTENED LATELY?
Moon Hooch's new jazz band from New York. Saxophone and drums. They're just a whirlwind.


DO YOU HAVE A DREAM RELATED TO MUSIC?
I have a great dream to do the author's concerts in bigger halls, with wonderful musicians and I would be very happy if we do something really valuable and world-class in this direction with one of the teachers. Everyone to convey their invaluable style and so to enrich ourselves and the music and the audience.
